COMIC CAVALCADE
By Ed Sanchez

During a time in the country when people were looking for a diversion from WWII, National Periodical Publications published the first issue of Comic Cavalcade (1942-1954). The comic book had a rare wrap-around cover, and the series quickly became a success. The title featured stories starring DC stallwarts Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and Catman. Unlike its sister titles, Detective Comics and Action Comics, the stories in Comic Cavalcade were intended to cover a much broader range of genres. To that end, the title featured everything from funny animal to human interest, as well as superheroes. An equally broad range of talent worked on the title, from Shelly Moldoff (Black Pirate) to Sheldon Mayer (Scribbly), and even the renowned artist Alex Toth (issues #26 - #28). The title also featured work by E.E. Hibbard and H.G. Peter, two Golden Age greats.

In 1949, when the nation's climate had shifted from the war effort to more conservative morals, the superheros in the pages of Comic Cavalacade began to be replaced by more innocent stories featuring mostly funny animal characters like The Fox & The Crow, Dodo & The Frog and Nutsy Squirrel. These anthropomorphic replacements took over after issue number 29, and continued their run until the title ended in 1954 with its now rare 63rd issue. Overall, the title stands out as one of the most diverse of the period with something for everyone!
